In addition, Martí Arasand, the technical responsible of the waste management of the Sarria-Sant Gervasi District (Barcelona) presented to the consortium the improvements achieved on the waste source separation and generation with the lately implementation of the door-to-door collection scheme in Sarria (Barcelona).
From September 2016 to August 2020 Fundació ENT participates in a new research project called “Decisive”: DECentralIzed management Scheme for Innovative Valorization of urban biowastE. The DECISIVE project proposes to change the present urban metabolism for organic matter (foods, plants, etc.), energy and biowaste to a more circular economy and to assess the impacts of these changes on the whole waste management cycle. Thus, the challenge will be to shift from an urban “grey box”, implying mainly goods importation and extra-urban waste management, to a cooperative organization of intra- and peri-urban networks enabling circular local and decentralised valorisation of biowaste, through energy and bio-products production.
